IV Therapy and COVID-19 Prevention

Updated: Apr 23


IV Therapy and COVID-19 Prevention

COVID-19 has taken the world by storm. While scientists are working around the clock to develop a vaccine, it’s our job to make good decisions and stay safe. The virus has made life harder for everybody, but soon we will get through this pandemic and be able to enjoy normal life once again.


In the meantime, you’re probably wondering if there are defenses you can mount against this virus beyond face coverings and social distancing. As it turns out, there’s one line of defense that has had our back for millions of years. The immune system plays a significant role in helping your body overcome any virus.


COVID-19 and The Immune System

To be clear, your immune system alone cannot prevent you from contracting the coronavirus. To be immune to certain illnesses, your immune system needs pre-existing antibodies that are familiar with the illness and ready to neutralize it quickly. Since SARS-CoV-2, the virus which generates COVID-19, is a novel pathogen, our immune systems have no antibodies to combat it; at least until a vaccine is developed. That’s part of why COVID-19’s effect has been so broad and devastating.


Instead of preventing you from contracting COVID-19, a strong immune system can help your body defeat the virus. If your immune system is in optimal condition, you have a higher chance of recovering quickly and suffering less severe symptoms.


Additionally, an August study by the National Institutes of Health found that certain memory cells in the immune system may recognize COVID-19 and be able to neutralize the virus quickly. More specifically, the study found that SARS-CoV-2 and the “common cold” share 67% genetic similarity. This means that a strong immune system that recognizes the DNA similarities between COVID-19 and the “common cold” will combat the virus effectively.


This means that your immune system, if properly maintained, can defend your body against a wide range of COVID symptoms. Does this mean you're immune from COVID? No, you can still contract and spread the virus. But, bolstering your immune system is your best chance for overcoming the virus on your own.


How to Boost Your Immune System

While much more research needs to be done on this topic, there is a list of known methods to strengthen your immune system. Here’s a brief look at some ways you can make your immune system a force to be reckoned with:

  • Vitamin Supplements: The most immediately effective and convenient way to boost your immune system is to simply supplement the vitamins you may be lacking in your diet. Vitamin C, D, and Zinc, for example, are proven to significantly strengthen the immune system. While pills and tablets are a common method of supplementation, intravenous(IV) infusion therapy is an up-and-coming alternative that is highly effective.

  • Exercise Regularly: From weightlifting to walking, exercise is a proven way to bolster your immune system. On top of that, there’s an ever-expanding list of ways that physical exercise increases not only your physical health, but mental health. This is highly advisable during these difficult times.

  • Maintain a Healthy Weight: Having a healthy weight is one of the most important health factors. Weighing too little will starve your immune system of the vitamins it needs to function, while being overweight reduces its ability to keep you safe.

  • Get a Proper Amount of Sleep: Sleeping 8 hours per night is incredibly beneficial for your health. It allows your body to recover from the day, but most importantly, the rest gives your immune system time to recover and prepare.

  • Don’t Smoke: Smoking harms the lungs and increases your chances of developing lung disease, including cancer and COPD. Smoking is especially dangerous during a pandemic in which the virus in question is known to cause lung inflammation. If there was ever a time to quit smoking, it’s now.

  • Drink Less Alcohol: Excessive alcohol will harm the immune system over time. Drinking in moderation or not at all is proven to bolster the functions of the immune system.


So, in short, making healthy lifestyle choices is guaranteed to keep your immune system in good shape. Considering how important it is to have a strong immune system during this pandemic, it is highly recommended to try your best to maintain yours.


But what if you needed to improve your immune health quickly? If the gradual methods listed above seem too out of reach for you, IV infusion therapy is the most efficient and immediate way to boost your immune health.


IV Infusion Therapy is the Future of Boosting the Immune System

As it turns out, using intravenous (IV) Infusion Therapy to boost your immune system could be the key to helping your body win the fight against COVID-19. What is IV Infusion Therapy? It’s pretty much the same concept as getting a Saline infusion, but with added vitamins to help your body achieve a desired effect.

Intravenous medication has been available to the public for a long time, but recent innovations in the applications of IV therapy have created an entirely new industry of safe, on-demand vitamin injections for wellness. Trials have shown that IV infusion therapy is very effective for many patients, and presents very little risk to recipients.


Through an IV infusion, you could get the best immune system-boosting vitamins injected directly into your bloodstream, putting them into effect immediately. If you want to see quick results, an IV infusion is your best option. Injection therapy is a safe and reliable method of medication and supplementation that has been improving since the 1950s.


Round 2 IV Wellness Solutions provides a wide variety of IV infusion therapy options, including an immunity boost that features Vitamin C, Vitamin B Complex, and a blend of amino acids. Despite your best efforts to stay safe, you never know when you might contract COVID-19. Now that you know that a strong immune system can help you overcome COVID, an IV infusion therapy session can help you be prepared for the worst-case scenario.
